1972 Vauxhall Ventora 3.3 Straight Six Straight Six. Emerald Green metallic with tan vinyl upholstery. The last of the Victors, launched in March 1972, was the FE (1972–76). Magazine and newspaper advertisements used the marketing slogan, "NEW VICTOR - The transcontinentals". The car appeared substantially larger than its predecessor, but was actually no wider and only 2 inches (5 cm) longer with much of the extra length accounted for by larger bumpers.[30] Nevertheless, a higher cabin and improved packaging enabled the manufacturer to boast of 1.5 inches (38 mm) more leg room in the front and no less than 4 inches (100 mm) of extra leg room in the back, with virtually no loss of boot/trunk capacity. Useful increases in headroom and shoulder-level cabin width were also achieved through the use of differently shaped side panels and windows. The Victor Deluxes originally had a bench seat in front; this was replaced with bucket seats for 1973 and the parking brake was moved to its conventional position on the floor between them.
Most UK cars in this class featured manual transmission and with the FE Vauxhall belatedly fell into line with their principal UK competitor by including a four-speed gearbox – available only at extra cost on the old Victor FD – as standard equipment.[30] The FE's extra weight presumably made this development irresistible. The four-speed transmission used the same box and ratios across the range, from the 1759 cc Victor to the torquey 3294 cc Ventora-badged version: contemporary road tests of the four-cylinder cars comment adversely on the wide gap – highlighted on the mountain roads included in the Portuguese route chosen for the car's press launch – between second and third gears.The Ventora, was introduced to the FD series sold between 1968 until it was dropped from the FE series in 1976. This used the Victor bodyshell, but had the Bedford derived 3294 cc straight six engine from the larger Cresta models. Again, the Ventora was distinguished from the Victor by improved trim levels and a more regal grille. This stunning Ventura is un-restored and all original with a genuine 45,000 miles from new. The car is very well known in the Vauxhall Club and is regarded pretty much as "The best of the best". The car drives without fault and on test drive performed just as you would expect with the straight six engine producing plenty of power with the manual gearbox and power steering making the driving experience a real pleasure. In summary if you want the best then this car is for you, a car we are very proud to offer and a real showstopper. It will grace any showground or private collection and in our opinion a sound investment. Although now MOT and Tax exempt a fresh MOT will be applied upon sale. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
